Modify Splunk_TA_infoblox to separate events into indexes

Splunk_TA_infoblox reset "sourcetype" of input events, in my case from "infoblox:file", to 3 different values -- infoblox:dns / :dhcp / :threatprotect.

I am trying to modify the TA to put those events into 2 different indexes: DHCP events to "ipam", others to "ipam-secure".

However I have not been able to do that. Here is what I have modified:

In props.conf:

[infoblox:dhcp]
TRANSFORMS-0_branch_index = infoblox_branch_index_ipam
. . . . . .
[infoblox:dns]
TRANSFORMS-0_branch_index = infoblox_branch_index_ipam_secure
. . . . . .
[infoblox:threatprotect]
TRANSFORMS-0_branch_index = infoblox_branch_index_ipam_secure

In transforms.conf:

[infoblox_branch_index_ipam]
REGEX = .*
DEST_KEY = _MetaData:Index
FORMAT = ipam

[infoblox_branch_index_ipam_secure]
REGEX = .*
DEST_KEY = _MetaData:Index
FORMAT = ipam-secure

The idea is basically, after an input event has its sourcetype reset as the TA already does, reset its index.

There are two TRANSFORMS for each raw event -- Should that work?

Should I have done it differently: adding more transform items in TRANSFORMS-0_branch_source_type for the [infoblox:file] sourcetype?

Any help is much appreciated! I'm running Splunk 7.0.3.

My mistake...!

The indexing process is a pipeline. There is no loop - so the "TRANSFORMS-0_branch_index" instances did not work after the infoblox:dhcp/:dns/:threatprotect was already set.

So branching off in indexes has to be done as a transform for the [infoblox:file] sourcetype.

Problem solved.
